Captain Lou Albano died. He was 76. As some of you may or may not know, one of my guilty pleasures as a youth was watching the WWWF. This was back in the mid-late 80s. I would secretly stay up late on Saturday nights to catch it when it was on. I never really told anyone I watched it or talked about it. For a 10 year old girl at a waspy school, this was not regularly scheduled programming. He was always one of the bad guys, managing the villain wrestlers and generally causing havoc. I fucking loved it. He also played Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. I always thought of him as the Ron Jeremy of wrestling (sorry Ron). R.I.P. Lou.
